Manual for the internationalization of local governments: a look from Argentina

Country: Argentina
Is there a place for cities on the international stage? How can they participate in the global arena? What tools do you have at your disposal? Why do some cities have very active international agendas and others do not? What resources or capabilities are essential for this type of experience? How does it contribute to local socioeconomic development? In response to these questions and others, this manual brings together a wide and varied amount of resources that allow us to understand the phenomenon of the internationalization of local governments in a comprehensive way: global causes; national regulatory frameworks; background in Argentina; types of internationalization strategies and tools; main international cooperators; state capacities necessary for the international participation of cities; among others. In addition, it disseminates good practices, experiences of local governments throughout the country, and provides attractive resources accompanying the development of each topic. The product is aimed at municipal agents and managers in a broad sense, students of disciplines such as international relations and areas related to the State and public administration, professionals seeking training in municipal internationalization issues and the general public.
